Friday...thank you! thank you! thank you!

Well Friday is finally here!  YAY!!  The first week back is always a bit rough!  Here are some favorites that helped me make it through!

Just Kidding...sorta!!  LOL

Fave moment of the week!
When I was a classroom teacher, for Christmas each year I made my students a CD with Christmas songs on it as a gift. When a former student brought up the fact that his family had started listening to the Class Christmas CD again, it got me missing that fact that I didn't have a class to give them to. I I've been the Librarian and Tech teacher for 3 years now! So I thought that this year I'd make the students who gave me a gift, a CD  as a thank you (I made one for an new students and the younger students, because any older children, I had had them or their siblings and knew that they already had some version of my Christmas CD at home!).  Well Wednesday in After Care, a mom shared with me that over the break her daughter told her a number of time that she missed me!  And that she'd put on the CD I made for her on to help her get through it and miss me a little less! They're still listening to it, even now.  That right there folks, made my whole week!!

Big Milestone for the blog!!
The blog hit 25,000 all time views yesterday!!  Woo Hoo!!  I realize that some blogs get more the 25,000 hits in an hour, but for my little blog that ain't have bad!!  And it got me pretty excited!!  So there's that!!!

Favorite Shows
It was Makeover Week this week on The Biggest Loser!!  So fun. it my most favorite episode every season and this week did not disappoint!!  Always unbelievable transformations!! And to top it all off Gavin DeGraw was on it!   I might've cried.  And then Parenthoood!!  The first of the final episode ever!  If you're not watching Parenthood, you should!  It is seriously THE BEST  So basically I was crying all night! #theuglycrycameout

A confession...
My Christmas decorations are still up!  I usually take them down on January 6th, Little Christmas.  But it's Friday and they're still up.  I am trying to figure out a way to get my tree, fully and completely decorated, into my guestroom, where I can leave it up, and just pull it back out 11 months from now.  I'm just so tired and I don't want to do it.  I think the house is cozy with everything up. But slowly surely I am putting things away and hope to get to it all this weekend!!  Wish me luck!!  I think I'll keep this one up all year though...

  1. That's the 29th time I've heard about Parenthood this week...maybe I will pick it up.

  2. I am so sad there are only 4 episodes left of Parenthood - I got hooked on the show a couple of years ago when a friend recommended it.
